A mother accused of pretending that her five-year-old daughter has had terminal cancer in an attempt to receive GoFundMe donations and gifts has been hit with eight new fraud charges.
The Brisbane woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is said to have raised $ 2,190 with crowdfunding handouts after lying about her daughter with an aggressive 15 cm brain tumor.
The police claim that the 36-year-old has set up a Facebook group that claims that her daughter only had months to live.
She appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday for new charges alleging that she received money, gifts, and adventure experiences from her fraudulent claims.
Earlier in September she stood in court with torture and three frauds.

The woman had taken the little girl to the hospital several times this year to undergo MRI scans.
She even called ambulances to her house and claimed that her daughter had epilepsy.
But the child was fired by hospital staff after they discovered that she was healthy.
The new fraud violations reportedly took place between July and September this year in Regents Park, Cannon Hill, Lowood, Kholo and Main Beach, the Courier Mail reported.
Her costs include unfairly taking advantage of an Emergency Services event, including a gift and entertainment for herself.
The police also claim that she has unfairly started a charity event and earned $ 670 for herself, as well as an additional $ 2,500.
Several Gold Coast organizations also helped tick off her daughter's bucket list, including helicopter, truck and motorbike rides and $ 3,666 in cash.
In September, the Queensland police claimed that the treatment of the woman by her daughter was torture because she led her to believe she was suffering from a brain tumor.
The police became involved after the child was often absent from school.
Investigators claim that the girl was removed from school after the mother was asked to provide medical statements to explain her absence.
Police said the charges related to the woman who told people that her child had cancer and misled people to receive financial benefits.
The woman received bail for the eight new charges.
She will appear in court again on November 27, as well as in December for her earlier charges.
